Nancy's story

Thanks to her perseverance and courage, Nancy and the members of her household can lead a respectable life. Nancy is a humble, honest, and very hardworking mother on this planet Earth. She has a lovely family, whom she adores very much.

Nancy never had the opportunity to advance her education, but this did not kill her dream of succeeding in life. She started farming and has been doing farm work for the past few years. During those years, she has gathered much experience, and all the farming techniques are at her fingertips.

On her farm, Nancy grows maize and rears dairy cow. These are the means she uses to obtain an income for her family. Nancy does not have the cash needed to buy fertilizers. Pesticides and herbicides are needed for the improvement and maintenance of her farm. She no longer wants to deal with local moneylenders who profit by taking a large part of her harvest. This prevents her from saving and taking better care of her family.

It is for this reason that she is asking for this loan from Juhudi Kilimo, which has partnered with Kiva. With increased income, she will repay her loan as well as be able to pay tuition fees for her children.
